    Exclamation E5200 Overclock Pentium dual-core CPU

    I just wanna OC my CPU to 3.2Ghz ( stock is 2.5Ghz ) and i wanna buy this heatsink for my "overclocking project".Tell me what do you think about this heatsink and please add some suggestions!!! Thank you...

    Here is the link to the heatsink:

    TITAN COOLER

    I donno if this forum will spam the link but if it will here is the "name" of the heatsink: TTC-NK35TZ/R(KU) , google it and chose the first link.

    What motherboard do you have, and what memory?

    Those cpu's are pretty good overclockers, so assuming the two above (mobo and mem) are decent AND you have a decent psu, there shouldn't an issue. However, even with the perfect setup, overclocks are never guaranteed.

    Yeah with the right mix of components the 5200's are pretty good at OC'ing. I had issue getting mine stable at over 3.1ghz but I think that was a ram issue. That HS/Fan unit looks decent, actually looks like my Artic Freezer 7, which keeps my chip nice and cool. If you can find some reviews on it that should give you a better idea of how well it works.

    As Solo said, what is the rest of your "overclocking project" going to have?

    OC

    Helo guys,
    I'd worked with E5200 for 2 years then I changed it to i5.
    I OC'ed it on Asus P5B(and -E - I made a present of my old CPU to my cousin ).
    Anyway:
    It works perfectly stable at 3.35 GHz with just changed FSB to 266. The VCore is little bit increased to 1.3625V.

    RAM: sometimes it is crucial to pump more juice to memory too. My GEIL 400 Dual Channel (orange with radiators) run using 2.1V (max).

    Now I have DDR3 Hyper-X 1600 and it gave me a little bit of a lesson.
    I OC'ed my I5-760 2.8 -> 3.46 (it works with 3.65 too) on the cheapest MSI mobo by changing the FSB 266 to 333, and memory clock got a little bit higher from 1600 to 1660... and sometimes my PC crushed to blue screen and restarted. So I increased the memory voltage from nominal/auto (which is 1.65) to 1.7V and now it works fine.

    I hope you will find it useful, good luck.

    Probably could of done yourself a favor and gotten 1.5V DDR3 at 1600Mhz instead of 1.65v, 1.5 is standard for DDR3, getting it at that voltage would/should leave more voltage increases when OCing further, and should allow more stable operation, since a lot of Motherboards don't support much over 1.65v max, especially the cheaper boards.

    Ok thanks, I'll check it once again, to see how it works with lower voltages.
    This is exactly my motherboard MSI-H55M. It is maybe not expensive but has some OC potentiality.

    didn't know the H55's had any OCing options, considering the H61/67 Socket 1155 replacements for that platform don't.

    as to the RAM from my understanding on how the voltages work its pretty much up to the motherboard on how far you can go, some boards have a low limit, some have a high. as to which, I have no idea. Generally for any real OCing options I steer away from lower range boards like what you have, and stay with the higher end chipset boards, such as P55/57, P67, Z68, etc, at least for Intel boards, AMD's seem to be a bit different with decent OCing options even on some of the lower end chipset boards usually.


    On my end, with the RAM, that is what I did, I was looking at some OCing potential down the road, with my slightly faster Core i7 940 over my previous 920 model.

    I assumed 1600Mhz would be plenty of OC room for the CPU, but was worried about Voltages, and whether the mobo would support higher than 1.65v.

    So I looked for 1.5v RAM in 1600MHz speed and got that instead, if I do have to increase voltage I should be able to do so with enough headroom to not have to worry about the board not supporting higher. (EVGA X58 SLI LE)

    Though most of the high end brands have some, I went with Corsair's Vengeance kits (6GB, 3x 2GB), though Gskill and Patriot have some decent kits with same specs as well.

    Ok, I'll keep that in mind thanks again.
    I just bought this one because of good reviews and nice price/performance factor. And I can say it works quite well with 8GB RAM, i5 and GTX460.
